Puddles of Love Hat

A Free Tunisian Crochet Pattern


I'm sure I have said this before. I love making baby hats!

I have probably made more baby hats than any other item. It was only natural that I would make a hat to go along with the Puddles of Love Blanket. This hat is made with Tunisian Crochet. To keep it simple it is worked flat and seamed together when you are done. 

This hat is a great option to start with if you find the size of the blanket overwhelming. Try the hat first, master the stitches and then you will be ready for the blanket.

    In a Flash Mitered Corners Blanket

    A Free Tunisian Crochet Pattern


    This blanket was so much fun to make. I always find Tunisian stitching so relaxing. I think it is the repetitiveness of it. This blanket would be easy to adapt for knitting, but I liked the thickness that the Tunisian stitch added to the blanket.  I like to describe this pattern as if a log cabin pattern got together with a 10 stitch blanket and had a baby it would be a mitered corner blanket.

    Mitered Corners make great boarders and they add a clean and modern edge to projects. The baby blanket that I made my daughter for when she was born was finished off with mitered corners.

    I wanted to make a tutorial for mitered corners and I thought what better way to teach it than to make a blanket that is made completely out of mitered corners. By the time you are finished with this fun blanket you will have conquered this technique, and hopefully you will love it as much as I do.



    In A Flash Mitered Corner Blanket


    Yarn: Loops and Threads Charisma Net WT 3.5 oz. 100g. 100% acrylic (9 balls) colors: Off White (2), Fuchsia (2), Yellow (3, I only needed a tiny bit of the 3rd ball), Bright Pop (2, I only needed a tiny bit of the second ball)

    Hook: K/ 10 1/2 - 6.50mm

    Notions: Yarn Needle (to weave in your ends)

    Size: Blanket is 32 in. by 32 in.

    Gauge: 8 TKS  equal 2 inches, 5 rows equals 2 inches

    Special Stitches:

    TKS: (Forward pass)working with the yarn behind your work, insert your hook between the vertical bars below the horizontal bars in the st below, yo, pull the yarn through, keep your loop on the hook.
    (Return pass): follow instructions in the pattern.

    Notes:
    When working the blanket each color change will add 4 rows when you go through the instructions of the Mitered corners. I can't not encourage you enough to keep counting your rows at multiples of 4. By keeping count you will insure that your corners will stay sharp and the blanket will be even on all sides.
